    Patriots DB Andrews arrested for assault

    MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - New England Patriots defensive back Willie Andrews is being held without bail after allegedly pointing a handgun at his girlfriend's head.

    A spokesman for the Bristol County district attorney said Andrews was arrested Monday morning after the alleged incident, which occurred when Andrews returned home at about 1 a.m. and an argument began between him and his girlfriend.

    Gregg Miliote said Andrews, a backup since being drafted by the Patriots in 2006, was charged with illegal possession of a large capacity firearm and assault with a dangerous weapon.

    He said Andrews is being held without bail pending the results of a dangerousness hearing Thursday.

    The Patriots said they were aware of the report but would have no further comment.

    In February, Andrews was arrested on a marijuana possession charge. In May, he admitted in court that there was enough evidence to convict him at trial but did not plead guilty.

    I can't imagine they won't cut him - two bad arrests in a couple of months, and he's a backup? This guy is done. Well, maybe the Bengals will sign him.

    Deb, I made a slight change to the thread title to indicate that Andrews is no longer with the team. Sorry for tweaking your post.

    Dude should be banned from the league. Maybe start to send a message to these idiots that they don't get a free pass to do whatever they want. (Like ambassadors to other countries do).


    Pats cut Andrews day after arrest for allegedly pointing gun at girlfriend

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots released defensive back Willie Andrews on Tuesday, one day after he was arrested for allegedly pointing a handgun at his girlfriend's head.

    The 24-year-old Andrews, primarily a special teams player, was being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing Thursday following his second arrest this year.

    The team had issued a statement Monday, saying, "The New England Patriots take the conduct of our players very seriously. We are aware of the very disturbing and alarming reports regarding Willie Andrews. We will not offer any additional comment, as is our policy regarding pending legal matters."

    The other arrest on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and driving an unregistered motor vehicle occurred in February. Andrews admitted in court in May that there was enough evidence to convict him at trial but did not plead guilty.

    On Monday, Andrews was charged with illegal possession of a large capacity firearm and assault with a dangerous weapon, according to Gregg Miliote, director of communications for the Bristol County district attorney's office.

    Andrews was arrested after allegedly returning home and having an argument with his girlfriend at about 1 a.m. Monday, Miliote said.

    In two seasons since the Patriots drafted him in the seventh round out of Baylor, Andrews returned four kickoffs for 149 yards, including a 77-yard touchdown last season, and had 24 tackles, all but one on special teams.

    Also, the Patriots signed linebacker Bo Ruud, a sixth-round draft pick from Nebraska. His brother Barrett plays for Tampa Bay.
